    Default Labour don't trust Reilly on Children's Hospital

    The Labour Party is doing it's own research into the location of the new Children's hospital. In the wake of the Shortall issue with the PCCs this seems a prudent decision. It does however show the lack of trust between the parties in government and in particular the trust Labour has in Reilly.

    It is past time for Reilly to go.

    TANAISTE Eamon Gilmore is carrying out his own research on children's hospital locations in a sign of a breakdown of trust in Health Minister James Reilly.

    The behind-the-scenes moves illustrate just how poor the working relationship is between Dr Reilly and the Labour Party.

    It follows reports this morning that the Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore is drawing up his own list of possible locations for the new Children's Hospital.

    They had their chance to stand up and say something on numerous occasions and chose to fall in behind Reilly along with FG. Too little way too late.

    They are on the road to a serious hiding in the next election.... unless they clear out the front bench and go early, it's their only hope and I think they realise that.

    Gilmore bypasses Reilly on children's hospital decision - National News - Independent.ie
    It is difficult to trust a man in Stubb's Gazette with a decision worth hundred of millions to various people.

    Gilmore gets no points either because this is the wrong issue to make a stand. The hospital has to go somewhere and few people are really in a position to contribute meaningfully to the debate. If it didn't matter to gilmore before , why should it matter now. How can this be brought to a head, when it cannot be proven that Reilly is wrong, even if he is?

    Labour was 100% correct on the shortall row, that is where the stand should have been made. If Reilly went, then a major step forward would have been made in Irish politics. If FG pushed an election on such a paltform as 'Reilly is always right' , it would have been decimated.

    Incredibly poor judgement from Gilmore as always. How much is is Wall st. PR man advisor paid? €169K? Jesus wept.

    Good Labour optics, but not much more.

    Will this be the hairline fracture that spreads into an almighty schism. After all the comings and goings and to-ing and fro-ing between here and Brussels, near economic oblivion the thing that could collapse the coalition is the building of a hospital, anything is possible on this strange little island

    I suspect the decision that was going to be made anyway will be made, but the Labour will quietly spin it as them acting as the conscience of the government and ensuring that a fair decision was made, at no real cost to themselves or to the government as a whole.

    If Gilmore,Rabbitte and Quinn were alive during the famine , they'd have taken the soup and changed religion daily to survive. This is all optic politics to appease the grassroots. It's not about hospitals , but about Pensions.

    I would like to be in Reilly's office when he reads about this.

    Reilly would probably be happy Eamon is doing his job for him.... it'll give him a chance to concentrate more on his default status and his coming High Court appearance....
